This year’s Camden and Islington LGBT History Month is the biggest in the UK. The theme for 2013 is maths, science and engineering and is dedicated to the great work of Alan Turing, the founder of the modern day computer. Alan Turing was severely persecuted for his sexuality and his contributions are still to this day not fully recognised.
The month is not all science, however! See the work of our school kids at Arsenal Football Club with the Educate and Celebrate showcase. Learn about our LGBT ancient history at the Petrie and British Museums. Kick start the month with Loudest Whispers, one of London's premier LGBT art exhibitions, and hear LGBT professionals speaking about their scientific experiences at UCL's Bright Club. And don't forget the sci-fi themed Big Bang Ball at the Islington Assembly Hall – a must for your diary!
